Get ready to enter the property market.

The first thing you’ll need to do is decide what you want to buy, so consider the location, whether you’d prefer a house or unit, a new home or existing home, and whether you’ll live in it or rent it out.

Next, get an idea of how much you can afford. Will you be buying by yourself, or with someone else? How much have you saved for a deposit? What are your income and expenses looking like?

It’s also important to research all the costs which may be involved with buying your first home, like stamp duty, Lenders Mortgage Insurance, Property valuation and conveyancing.

When you’ve done your research, it’s time to get pre-qualified. With loans.com.au, you can apply online in just minutes. This will give you a guide of how much you can borrow. From here, we can help you apply, upload your documents, complete the valuation of your property, and get your loan approved so we can return your documents and you’ll settle.

No matter what stage of the process you’re at, we’re here to help.

What documents do I need to buy or build a home in Australia?

Stamp duty is a tax imposed by state governments in Australia on the purchase of assets such as real estate. There are many factors involved in determining the cost of stamp duty for a property. These include:

  • The state you’re buying in – All states have different methods of calculating stamp duty so the amount will differ.
  • The price of the property – In general, the cheaper the property is the less stamp duty you will pay.
  • The type of home you’re buying – Vacant land will have less stamp duty compared to an established home.


Most state and territory governments provide stamp duty concessions to first home buyers and sometimes waive the need to pay stamp duty altogether. It’s best to research your individual state or territory to see what the maximum property value is so you can avoid paying stamp duty.

You can get your dream home at a great low home loan rate because of our online model. We don't have to pay for branches or broker commissions, which means we are able to pass our savings directly on to you through low home loan rates and and no ongoing, annual or monthly fees.

A property report is helpful if you're looking to purchase a new property, know the address and want to determine if it’s the right property for you, or potentially in a high growth area.

Our property reports provide information such as Estimated property value, Property mapping, Properties sold in the area, Market comparison, Median sale prices in the area and Suburb insights.

At loans.com.au, you’ll need at least a 10% deposit to buy your first home. If you want to avoid paying LMI, we recommend you save at least a 20% deposit of the property price. We also recommend you to look into grants and schemes available to first home buyers which may assist with the purchase.

We can provide approval for applicants in as little as 2-3 days, pending the customer's individual circumstances and all correct documentation has been provided. It's important to note that this is not a 'one size fits all' number, and the approval time will depend on each individual applicant's circumstances.

We'd always advise our customers to have the right documentation ready at application stage, so you can move forward with your application as quickly as possible.

Lender's Mortgage Insurance is an insurance policy that protects the lender from financial loss in the event that the borrower can’t afford to keep up their home loan repayments. If you have saved a deposit of 20% or more, you won’t have to pay "Lender's Mortgage Insurance" (LMI).

One of the benefits of being a first time home buyer in Australia is the access to a First Home Owner Grant. A First Home Owner Grant or FHOG was introduced by the Australian government to help first time homebuyers purchase their home. The requirements aren’t self-evident and every state and territory has different criteria and grant offers. To get more information about FHOG in your state, we suggest you visit the relevant website:

ACT | NSW | NT | SA | QLD | TAS | VIC | WA

Unlike many other lenders, we charge no monthly, annual or ongoing fees. The only fees you will pay on your home loan are a one-off $300 settlement fee plus a security assessment fee, which for a standard property in a metropolitan area in a major city starts at $230 for properties valued up to $1 million.

You have the option to add a 100% offset sub-account to your loan. Many people choose to do this to help pay their home loan faster and save thousands on interest payments. For an extra 0.10% to the loan, you can add a 100% offset sub-account with online, ATM, EFTPOS & Visa debit card access to your money, plus unlimited free redraws. For out more information about adding an offset-sub account.
